Science and technology

Science and technology is mandatory for all students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

Raymond Terrace Public school has a fully functional computer room and an outstanding Maker Space. Both of which are open for students to visit during recess and lunch break times and/or with their classroom teachers for integrated learning opportunities.

These spaces are important to our school because they support our students in becoming confident and knowledgeable in the area of Digital Technology. Our students are provided opportunities to develop problem-solving, creativity and collaboration skills, all of which will prepare them for success in the future.

The amazing Maker Space learning environment offers students access to a wide range of technological resources including:

  • Dash and Dot
  • Spheroes
  • Bee- Bots
  • Makey Makey
  • iPads and Laptops
  • Osmo
  • Ozobots
  • We-Do Lego robotics
  • Ev3 Lego robotics
  • Merge Cubes
  • Green screen
  • Cameras

We also regularly borrow kits from the STEM T4L library, such as Virtual Reality (VR) headsets which can be seen being enjoyed below. 

In science and technology, students explore the natural and made worlds. They learn how to apply scientific and technological skills, knowledge and understanding across a broad range of contexts.

Science provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real world problems. The inquiry and skill-based nature of science opens doors to ideas and discoveries.
